Shawn Mendes – Mercy (Illuminate Deluxe Album)


Take it easy on my heart
And even though you got good intentions
I can’t take anymore
Please have mercy on me
Tell me that I’m not crazy
You keep tearing me apart
[Outro]
Would you please have mercy, mercy on my heart?
Ooh, I’m begging you, I’m begging you
[Bridge]

I would gladly do it twice
But I fall when I’m around you
Even though you don’t mean to hurt me
And even though you got good intentions
Then you go and slam it on me
Just that you’re honest with me
[Verse 1]
Take it easy on my heart
Even though you don’t mean to hurt me
[Intro: Humming]
Take it easy on my heart
Even though you don’t mean to hurt me
I’m begging you for mercy, mercy

Show me an open door
Please have mercy on me
Please have mercy on me
I’m not asking for a lot
I’m saying, baby…
Would you please have mercy on me?

I’m prepared to sacrifice my life
I’d drive through the night
Ripping all the skin from off my bones
Just to be near you, baby
Consuming all the air inside my lungs

You’ve got a hold on me
You keep tearing me apart
[Pre-Chorus 2]
[Verse 2]
Ripping all the skin from off my bones
I’m a puppet on your string
Would you please have mercy, mercy on my heart?
I’m begging you for mercy, mercy
I’m a puppet on your strings
[Pre-Chorus 1]
Consuming all the air inside my lungs
I’m saying, baby…
Would you please have mercy, mercy on my heart?
I stand a hundred feet
I’m prepared to sacrifice my life
Don’t even know your power
Heart open, testify
Would you please have mercy, mercy on my heart?
I need you to set me free
And my pride is all I got
Begging you, begging you, please, baby
[Chorus 1]

Would you please have mercy on me?
[Chorus 2]
I would gladly do it twice
You keep tearing me apart

[Chorus 3]
I need you to set me free
